Abstract The operation of the code MET_cross for the solution of the semiclassical multichannel eikonal theory for electron-atom scattering is described. Also described is a second code, MET_states, which utilizes the results produced by MET_cross to generate a complete set of state multipoles and coherence and alignment parameters needed to characterize the polarization properties of the radiation emitted in the decay of the metastable atomic states excited in the collision. Included also is a discus... Title of program: MET_cross Catalogue Id: ADAW_v1_0 Nature of problem Calculation of the complex scattering amplitudes, differential and integral cross sections for the elastic and inelastic scattering of electrons by atoms in the intermediate to high energy regime. In addition, a characterization of the orientation and alignment of the atomic charge clouds via calculation of the coherence and correlation parameters.
